Iowa State was really close to getting on KU's Revenge Tour list this season.
The Cyclones were a couple buckets away and Ben McLemore's amazing bank shot three-pointer to give KU life in overtime the last time these two played in Lawrence. Monday it's going down in Ames, Iowa. Game time set for 8 p.m.
Kansas (23-4) is coming off a blowout win over TCU, Saturday in Lawrence. Doubtful if the game with Iowa State will be nearly as lopsided. Kansas won 97-89 but needed overtime to do it.
Iowa State has won 22 straight home games at Hilton Coliseum and beat Kansas 72-64 last season in Ames. They beat Texas Tech 86-66 Saturday, their third straight win.
Kansas is also trying to keep pace with K-State in the Big 12 Standings to get their ninth conference title. The Jayhawks have four games left in the regular season (including Monday's) to stay on top.
